It only took two years (I thought it was just a year but holy crap, two years? Seriously?) but I finally posted a fic. No, it's not that monster Brass/Annie fic that's been giving me fits. It's a very short Brass/Sofia fic that I wanted to write after the episode, For Warrick, and only now got around to finishing it. It's been so long (obviously) since I finished anything, I have to admit it was a bit of a boost to finally get something done and posted.

If anyone would like to check it out, it's called Last Call

The fic is now complete and posted on fanfiction.net and over on [livejournal.com profile] brasslove.

Next part of Forgiveness is up. It's also over on [livejournal.com profile] brasslove. Just FYI but this fic only has 5 parts so the next installment will post on Wednesday and the final should be up next Saturday.

Got struck by a bout of insanity on Friday and decided to have a yard sale today. It was only from 8am until noon but it meant being up at 6:45 to post signs. I don't do 6:45am even on a work day and it was made worse by a wicked bout of insomnia last night. If I ever was asleep, I dreamed that I was awake. As for the yard sale, the early morning started out very humid but around 8am, the wind picked up and the humidity and the gnats went away. The humidity did a number on my signs, causing them to curl up but the wind blew them upright so people found their way. And by 11:30am, just about everything was gone. That includes the old HP printer/scanner/copier and the bike that had been taking up space for years. The only thing I had left were a couple of VHS players (anyone want one) and a box of VHS tapes. I didn't expect them to sell. I was really surprised because there wasn't much haggling, which was a little disappointing because I like to haggle. The guy who bought my bike paid the full $50. Didn't even ask me if I'd take less. Of course it was a '79 Schwinn Traveler so it was worth every bit of the $50 and if he fixes it, it's probably worth even more.

The highlight of the day was a little Latino man who spoke no English but was all smiles. He wanted to buy some things but there was a language barrier, which caused him to be very shy and one of my neighbors showed up and bought up just about everything left. So the man left but around noon, as I was cleaning up, he and his wife came by again. They were checking out the few things I still had out but I remembered that earlier he was checking out some bath stuff I had since taken inside. Seeing him with his wife, it made sense. So I gestured for them to stay and went inside for the box of stuff. There were full bottles of lotions and body sprays and bath gels and I was ready to give it to them but the man wanted to pay and I thought I might insult him if I didn't accept something. So I let him have the hand held vacuum cleaner he was interested in and the box of toiletries for $2. And now I have two new friends who live down the block from me. Even though we can't understand each other at all.

When I get in a mood, such as for a yard sale, I get ruthless. There's this desk chair that has been in my computer room forever. Harry claimed it as his and would often curl up on this cushion I had put on the seat to keep it from being covered with cat hair. Well, I put the chair in the yard sale and it sold. Now poor Harry is missing his chair and I feel terrible. It really did need to go but Harry keeps going over to where it was and looking for it. I feel awful about it.

Today was the first "normal" day at work since...the end of April. I left at 6:45pm, got home around 7:15, and cooked actual food for dinner. I remember days like this. They were pretty okay.

The all-nighter last week went until 4am so it wasn't quite all night. I got home around 4:30 and didn't get to sleep until after 5am. Then it was up again at 9:30 and back to work. We got the bulk of the spreadsheet done. It's massive, with something like 20 tabs to enter data but a good chunk of it is locked. Everything has to tie out, which was complicated enough, but compounding that were formula errors that made it a little hard to tell if we were tying out. I found out today that the errors were only in our spreadsheet (we were provided this specific spreadsheet by the Division). Anyway, we made all four deadlines, the last one going in at 11:45pm. It was a long couple of days. And it just continued into this week. Monday night I didn't roll out of the office until midnight and last night it was going on 10pm. Now you see why I was so excited to get home so early?

My cats have been super clingy since I got back from CO. With these horrendous hours, I think they think I'm abandoning them every time I leave the house. My girl, Sophie, has been glued to my side every night.

Just posted part 2 of the Brass/Annie fic, Forgiveness. You can also read it over on [livejournal.com profile] brasslove.

Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday [livejournal.com profile] tos_lover, LOTS OF BRASS FOR YOU!

And in honor of [livejournal.com profile] tos_lover's birthday, I have finally gotten the first part of Forgiveness posted.

What a great day!

It's done! The freaking Brass/Annie fic that has taken me something like three years to write is done. Sure, I still need to read over this last part and it still needs to spend some quality time with [livejournal.com profile] tos_lover and I still need to incorporate the feedback I got on the last section but the freakin' fic is done.

I am so happy! I think I'm going to cry.

The sequel to "Playing the Hero" is up at [livejournal.com profile] brasslove or over on fanfic.net. I can't believe how this all came together. And just FYI, I hate looking at fics after they post. I always find a ton of errors.

On a separate note, I'm totally hooked on Man vs. Wild. Bear Grylls is awesome! It's amazing what he can do with his own pee and I love how he always tells a story about how someone died in the area where he is.

I finally got my frakkin' Brass/Sofia fic titled, completed and posted: A Little Stick Therapy

Man, am I ever relieved! I issued this challenge over on the Jim Brass Fansite back in, oh, February, with a due date of April 5th, I think. This was my entry. Yeah, I'm a little late.

Now I can start back on that Brass/Annie sequel fic and my fic for the Jim Brass Vacation Ficathon over on [livejournal.com profile] brasslove.

I have a story to pimp. It's not mine but one I found on CSI Forensics by AutumnOak and it's awesome. It's mostly Grissom with some Brass. Seriously, check it out. Tantalus
